Gullen Range Wind Farm
Gullen Range Wind Farm is an operational wind farm in the Southern Tablelands of NSW, Australia. It is owned by New Gullen Range Wind Farm Pty Ltd (NGRWF).
The wind farm consists of 73 turbines and produces 165.5MW of renewable power in ideal wind conditions.
On an average day it produces enough energy to power in excess of 70,000 average homes.
By 2020, Gullen Range Wind Farm will have saved 2.7 million tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional power generation.
Stretching from north to south, the wind farm measures 22km, approximately centred on the locality of Bannister, 11km South of Crookwell and 32km north west of Goulburn.
BJCE Australia is proud to be a founding signatory of the Clean Energy Council’s Best Practice Charter for Renewable Energy Developments. The charter is a voluntary set of commitments to reflect our promise to develop and operate projects in a socially responsible way. The charter can be downloaded here.

Applications for the next Stage 2 Funding Round will close on 22nd December 2018. The CLEP provides grants towards implementing clean energy improvements in the community. If your property is within 5km of Gullen Range Wind Farm, you may be eligible to apply for a grant to install solar panels, solar hot water, wall insulation or double glazed windows on your house. To find out more, click here or contact us.
A total of 39 houses near Gullen Range Wind Farm now have energy improvement measures such as solar panels, solar hot water systems, or better roof or wall insulation thanks to grants valuing more than $250,000 provided by the wind farm under this program. These installations will save those residents money on their power bills for many years to come.
The Clean Energy Program (CLEP) has been so popular, Gullen Range Wind Farm is now voluntarily committing more funding to the program than is required under our commitments to the NSW government. This funding is being brought forward from future years of the CLEP, so that eligible residents don’t have to wait to enjoy the program’s benefits. The grants are approximately $6500 per house and the CLEP is now in its fourth year.
There are a further 50 households that have entered the first stage of the program but are yet to apply for for their grant. These households have had an energy audit completed on their home to identify the best way to improve its energy efficiency and maximise potential power bill savings. They can now apply for their $6500 grant, meaning the CLEP is going to continue to expand in 2019 and 2020.
